Trust Bank Gambia Limited Thursday donated 11 tricycle wheelchairs to the Foundation For Disabled People (FFDP). The presentation ceremony was held at the FFDP office in 14 Primet Street, Banjul.
Speaking at the ceremony, Opesan Gabriel Kehinde, the director of the Foundation, said that the tricycle wheelchairs are important to persons with disability. He also assured that the Foundation is not leaving any stone unturned to see that persons with disabilities are well taken care of and get involved in the social life of this great nation. "As part of our efforts to stop street begging and discourage them from making a nuisance of themselves and public sympathy due to abject poverty," he disclosed.
Opasan thanked the Gambia government for their unflinching support to the Foundation. He also appealed to the government to build a skills centre for people with disability. He thanked Gamcel, Trust Bank Gambia Ltd and their partners from Holland, Mr and Mrs Ninke and Niel splitter for the support they rendered during the tricycle wheelchair fabrication.
Other speakers included Alex Allasan Gomez, a representative of Trust Bank Gambia Ltd and Lamin Jammeh, a representative of Gamcel,
